MALT, GRAIN & CANE Caol Ila 13 Year Old (Signatory Vintage) 2008
MALT, GRAIN & CANE Caol Ila 13 Year Old (Signatory Vintage) 2008. CAOL ILA (pronounced as Cull Eela) is a Scottish distiller located on the isle of Islay, near Port Askaig. Caol Ila is the Gaelic name for Sound of Islay, a waterbody that separates the isle of Islay and Jura.
Founded in 1846 by Hector Henderson, it continues to be a leading distillery for peated whisky lovers. This bottle commemorates Malt, Grain & Cane’s first bottling with Signatory Vintage, with the assistance of La Maison Du Whisky Singapore.
Pronounced “Cull Eela.” It’s the Gaelic name for the Sound of Islay, which separates the island from Jura. For some, the distillery’s pronunciation is as remote as its location, sitting as it does on the rugged eastern coast, where it has remained hidden from view since 1846. However you say it, the fine, smoky whisky produced by generations of islanders is worth exploring.
